HOLO Books







Welcome to the HOLO Books website.

HOLO Books was set up on 5th November 1999 by the wife and husband team Susanna Hoe and Derek Roebuck - established writers in their fields.

HOLO Books two imprints - The Women's History Press and The Arbitration Press - reflect the founders' determination to publish scholarly books accessible to the general reader which may not appear commercial to mainstream publishers.

HOLO Books is likely to remain very small to take account of the partners' writing commitments.

The Women's History Press is inspired by Virginia Woolf's haunting image of 'those unlit corridors of history where the figures of generations of women are so dimly, so fitfully lit.'

The Arbitration Press' primary concern is to provide historical and comparative insights into how disputes are resolved.
